A bachelor degree is required prior to admission and other documentations, i.e., Certificate of Indian Blood (CIB) for tribal eligibility, three letters of recommendation, a 500-word essay and so forth.
All of the classes are face-to-face and are on-site at the University located in Crownpoint. The chance of offering on-line classes is slim to none due to the necessity of using Navajo language. Most of the classes are held during day-time with exception of one or two offered in the evening. It is a full-semester program and can be completed in two-year time period, providing you attend one or both summer(s).
